Am used to trading equities and futures. Considering options as an extra tool. Why should I/shouldn't I? Options have a premium over equities I think? Less liquid? Lot of study to understand them? What are the reasons for? margin? Hedging? What do I need. Optionvue looks good - but pricey? How about the players in options? Are they more/less crafty/gullible than the other markets? Can options be viable for daytrading or are they mainly for longer term?
